Trade Your Used Books For New Books! Here's how...


Trade Your Used Books

For New Books (or Toys) -- No Trades in November and December

How it works:

  1. Bring your books  to our back counter Mon.-Sat.. from 11am to 3pm (unless otherwise posted)! Depending on how busy we are we will let you know how long it will take us to value your books. During this time feel free to shop or leave the store as long as you return the same day to retrieve your credit.

  2. We will sort through your books – checking their condition, age, our stock and demand and sales history of the author(s) and titles.  Books we can use will be valued and you will receive half the value we will price them at in store credit.

  3. Your credit will be waiting at the cash register for you. Feel free to shop the same day or we can put your credit on a gift card that never expires. Your credit is good on anything in the store! However, only half of your purchases can be paid for with this trade credit.

  4. Pick up your books. The books we can’t use we recommend that you donate them to a local library or school.

What We Don’t Accept:          We will accept only good, clean, odor-free, like-new condition books.

  1. No underlining or highlighting. Books must be free of marks or writing (such as names) and clean clean clean!

  2. No smoke or pet odors. We want them to smell like books smell. Hmmmm . . .

  3. Paperbacks should have NO creases. No broken or cracked spines. If books came with a dust-jacket, they should have a dust-jacket.

  4. Certain books become dated quickly, travel guides, test prep, software or hardware, textbooks, business and political books—unless published with the past year we will not accept them. Contemporary (excluding classic or literary) Fiction over two years old we may not accept.

  5. We also don’t accept: Hardcover (book-of-the-month) Book club editions, self-published books, library books, magazines, encyclopedias, Readers’ Digest condensed books, VHS takes, DVD’s and CD’s.

    Nothing is held overnight. If your books and or credit is not picked up the same day we cannot guarantee that it will still be available.


    Thanks for helping us find a new home for your like-new pre-read books and for helping you keep your home library fresh and new!
